Road to GE #1 - Vote Where You Live or In Your Hometown?

Road to GE #1 - Vote Where You Live or In Your Hometown?

Road to GE is a show that explores your power in deciding who serves you in government. 

On our first episode, we discuss the whole idea of going back to your hometown to vote for elections. Every time there’s an election in Malaysia, there’s talk of needing to take a couple of days off from work, traffic jams and increase in prices of flight tickets, as people rush to make it back to their hometowns to vote. This is something very normal here, something we’re all accustomed to. But what if this practice could be hurting democracy a little bit. 

Danesh Prakash Chacko, Director, Tindak Malaysia, joins us to discuss.
